    La Befana

    2017: This starts off very sweet and viscous, like a syrup made of flowers. It smells very thick and a little heavy, but I don’t get caramel like some others have mentioned, it’s definitely more like a floral simple syrup. As it dries it gets lighter, sweet, powdered sugar dusting something juicy and berry-like, and slightly tart. I don’t get any smokiness, it ends up a very pleasant almost jammy scent, dusted with a vanilla powdered sugar. It stays close to my skin, but I keep practically inhaling my wrists. It’s lovely and soft, and I’m glad I snagged a bottle.

    I'm not very good at this (and I thought I'd be able to write something perhaps slightly clever, if clumsy, but really, this is such a serious and beautiful scent I just couldn't), but as there is only one review, I thought I'd throw my two cents in. Its warm, the bourbon vanilla is definitely the main thing I get, but the everything else gives it a darker depth. I like the previous review's description with the chewy tobacco, because it I'm absolutely getting a "chewy" vibe from it. I can just get a wood and slightly spicy smell in the background, overall its a dark, sweet scent, but not at all sickly. It doesn't stray into foodie territory at all, its bourbon vanilla sweet, but with this resiny depth. Its definitely not little-girl sweetness and light, its feels adult, and sexy, it makes me think of dark, shadowy places. I know I'm doing a horrible job of describing it, but really, its amazing. Its vanilla spiked with bourbon and darkness. Absolutely gorgeous. I guess what I'm trying to say is that wearing this is currently making me want to bite my person, and I can't think of any higher praise than that.

    at first, this is all lemon-pledgey-punch-to-the-face-blech. but it dries down to a delicious creamy lemony, blueberry pie. i swear i can even get a graham cracker crust smell, with a whipped top. i would swear that there was a slight amount of coconut in there also, but not a suntan lotion coconut, because its good and i usually detest coconut. its so delicious, i want to eat my arm. i'm sooooo glad i bought this off of someone, because it is seriously fantastic. i like it much more than i thought i would, and feel all sticky-sweet awesome.

    All Night Long

    When I first put this on, I wasn't too impressed. It smelled like sweet, spicy cinnamon, almost exactly like red hots or an atomic fireball. As it dried down though, it calmed down a lot. The candy smell went away completely, and (I'm terrible at picking out notes) something completely smoothed it out. It ends up smelling smooth and creamy and sweet, very warm, but not the hot candy smell I was getting before. I like this one a lot, and I'll be hanging on to my imp.

    I still haven't decided if I like this or not. It smells entirely like its description, slightly sour wine, grave loam, dirt, and something decaying underneath. Its like wine spilled across an ancient, rotting tablecloth in a dark room, with something that smells like grave dirt and evil lurking in the deepest shadows. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't smell bad at all. Its certainly evocative of its name, but I'm not sure its for me. I have a feeling it might be one of those that grows on me though, so I'll hang on to the imp.

    The Lights of Men's Lives

    I'm not getting any coconut at all (which is a good thing, to me). This is just lovely, sweet beeswax. Its warm, and sweeter than I expected. Its a very comforting scent though, it makes me think of the warm glow of candles made of beeswax, flickering in the darkness. Not just one, but many of them. I love it.

    Death Cap

    On me this is very dry and dirty. It smells exactly like mushrooms, with a hint of vanilla maybe. Its a very interesting scent, and smells just like it should, but I hate mushrooms. Off to swaps!

    This is a light, bright, juicy scent. It would be great for spring/summer. Theres a little bit of greenery, but this is mostly peach on me. I'm not a fan of smelling like peach (though I do like the smell) so I'll probably swap this, but I'm glad I got to try it.

    Grand Guignol

    I'm getting the brandy/alcohol smell with this one, but just slightly. Mostly this is peach. A juicy, delicious, fuzzy warm peach, just before you bite into it.... unfortunately not something I want to smell like, but this would be great for people who do like peach. Its not too cloying or sweet, and its certainly a true peach scent, its just not for me

    Temple of Dreams

    As others have said, this has a definite herbal note, with lavender. As it dries I get an almost creamy lemony scent with cooking herbs (basil? sage? rosemary?). Its a strange combo, but not bad. I did put it on right before bed, and the only dream I can remember having is one where I was dismayed that James Woods (where did he come from? ) was playing Doctor Who Anyway, I think its a bit too herbal for me, and I'm not a huge fan of lavender, so this one goes in the swap box

    Whoa Sassafrasquatch! At first on me this is all rootbeer, it even smells bubbly and carbonated! Luckily as it dries down, the vanilla comes into play and I get the yummiest creamy vanilla rootbeer scent, with just hints of cedar in the background. Its like a frothy rootbeer float just placed on the wooden table in front of you. Not what I expected at all, but I'm seriously considering a bottle.

    The Great Sword of War

    In the imp, this smells delicious.... cocoa over tobacco leaf with just a hint of orange in the background... but as soon as it hits my skin it smells like lemon. I know there isn't any lemon listed, but i seriously smell like a lemonhead tastes. I'm still not quite sure how I managed that one Like I said though, it smells amazing in the imp, so I'm sure it would be great on someone with better skin chemistry!

    Unfortunately, I get no aquatics at all from this one. On me its all mint and pine. Its refreshing, but dark at the same time. I'm getting a little of the lotus in the background, but all in all, its a pretty sharp scent on me. Not being a huge fan of mint, I'll be rehoming this one.

    Eat Me

    this is so yummy! At first its all berry and cake but as it dries, the berries disappear. I'm left with a fluffy vanilla bean cake and it smells delicious! Its long lasting too, I put it on about eight hours ago and I can still smell it on my wrists. I really wish I could be more eloquent right now, but I'm distracted by having to tell myself every few seconds that it would not be a good idea to lick my arm. I'm going to need a bottle of this.

    On me this, is very light and pretty. The florals aren't cloying or overpowering, and the aquatic note isn't a salty sea note. Its more like a clear, still lake with sunlight sparkling off the surface and flowers strewn across it, floating slowly by. Definitely a calm, pretty scent and I like it a lot.
